Two women flying back to Florida from Cuba were stopped at airport security when a human skull was found inside their carry-on luggage.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports from Miami:

Police were called at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport when pottery carried by two women flying in from Cuba was found to have a real human skull inside it. It freaked out other passengers.

(Passengers) "Oh that's absolutely terrible to hear anything like that. They shouldn't bring anything like that in. // Like a human skull? Yeah, that's pretty scary!"

The two women are Santeria priestesses. They were in Cuba for religious training and were trying to make a connection to Baltimore. They were allowed to continue on but the bones went to the medical examiner.
